The memorial is 4 hours drive one way to Auschwitz and includes 2 hour walking tour of Krakow. Our guide at the memorial was outstanding and we this is subjective to several history tours on our trip. Her emotive and well organized commentary kept us on top of history at each section of the memorial. Needless to say, Auschwitz is a testament to the ultimate nadir of our human morality and the pinnacle of its apathy!!

This tour was so humbling and the tour guide at Auschwitz was amazingly knowledgable. I would highly recommend this tour. Janis B Fort Lauderdale

It's worth driving 4 hours to see the place. It put things in perspective. Our tour guide was good. Tiring to drive from Warsaw though.

Well organised tour. Our guide was superb and transfer from Aushcwitz to Birkenau was smooth.

The drive from Warsaw was extra long due to construction, so our day was 14 hours. The driver was on time, professional, and willing to stop a for a break each way. The lunch was ok, the Polish part could be improved, meaning... perogies, cabbage rolls, borscht, etc. It is quite chaotic as the tours get organized, pay toilets, book store, restaurant. All groups use the radio transmitter, but our system was very poor, with either interference from other tours, guide was not using her own mic properly, rain, and getting too far away from the base.
The tour itself is very informative, upsetting, sad, etc, I would have to say that seeing how big the Birkenau section is, really hits home the horrid stories that we have all heard. It is very expansive, and there is a lot of walking for this section.
Our group was glad we did the tour, but a long day, and not happy about the headphone/radio system.
